Acne and oily skin have been a problem for as long as anyone remembers. In the past there only a few natural remedies to help fight against it. In the modern world, we have access to a variety of ways to treat our skin and keep it smooth and healthy. The most common way to deal with acne-filled, oily skin is through the use of peel treatments. There are several treatments that are the most popular based on the advantages that each one brings. Read on to learn about the most popular peel techniques and each of their advantages.
Carbon Laser Peel Technique
The Carbon Laser Peel treatment involves placing a carbon peel over your skin and allowing it to be absorbed into each layer of your skin. The carbon then absorbs the debris in your pores. The laser is then used to destroy the carbon particles which also destroys the debris as well as dead skin cells. The laser also energizes the collagen production in your skin which increases the rate at which collagen is produced. This effect allows your skin cells to grow faster which increases the density and smoothness of your skin. The main purposes for using the Carbon Laser Peel treatment are as follows:
- Reducing pore size
- Increasing skin renewal
- Providing you with an even skin tone and texture
- Improving radiance
The Carbon Laser Peel treatment has no side effects and requires no recovery time. The procedure takes between 5 to 10 minutes. Once it is over, you can simply walk out and go on with your day.
Chemical Peel Technique
The Chemical Peel treatment is designed more for the surface of your skin. It uses an acidic chemical compound which is placed on your skin. The compound will penetrate the top layers of your skin and exfoliate it. At first, it will sting, but the pain won’t last long. After it has done its job, your skin will feel drier and tighter. The results of this procedure include correcting the following skin issues:
- fine lines
- oily skin
- dull and dark complexion
While the Chemical Peel treatment is capable of removing all the above things from your skin surface, it can also cause redness of the skin for several days. Your skin also tends to be quite tender for a few days which requires you to avoid direct sunlight.
Silk Peel Technique
Silkpeel uses a wet abrasion method to exfoliate the skin and stimulate new skin cell growth. Using this wet abrasion, dead skin cells can be scrubbed away, allowing other skin care products and moisturisers to absorb more easily and penetrate deeper into the skin. Some of the advantages of Silk Peel treatment are as follows:
- Aged and photodamaged (pigmented) skin
- Oily Skin
- Acne and acne scars
- Dull complexion
- Uneven skin tone
- Enlarged pores
- Stretch marks
This treatment is painless and allows you to continue with your daily activities almost immediately after.
